Why do we have to post 5 times before we can post on any of the writing forums? It seems silly and counter-intuitive.

It's kind of a "spammer" deflector or one-hit-wonder eraser. The Beat wants you to become part of the community I guess.

I've heard rumors of what the ancient rulers wanted the limit to be. *shudders*

Why are you asking, when you have 17 posts now? Five posts didn't seem all that much after all, did it?

The administrators probably want you to get used to the idea of being active on the forum. You should get used to receiving responses and meet the community.

Nothing serious, just learning your way around the site.
Learning the dos and dont's of the network.
